# Orbit (galpy.orbit)¶

See Orbit initialization for a detailed explanation on how to set up Orbit instances.

## Plotting¶

In addition to these methods, any calculable attribute listed below can be plotted versus other attributes using plotATTR, where ATTR is an attribute like R, ll, etc. In this case, the y axis will have ATTR and the overrideable x axis default is time. For example, o.plotR() will plot the orbit’s R vs time.

## Attributes¶

• Orbit.name Name(s) of objects initialized using Orbit.from_name
• Orbit.shape Tuple of Orbit dimensions
• Orbit.size Total number of elements in the Orbit instance
